Sea Scallop Shorts

So orginially I was goiing to work on a pair of sailor style shorts for my summer wardrobe essentials list but…

I have been seeing bloggers all over raving over scalloped hem shorts.

So what the hey. I can totally make a pair of these babies and it saves me from all the buttonholes associated with sailor shorts haha.

I am modifying Mccalls 3688 to make my shorts.

I already have my shorts almost completely together I just gotta put in the zipper then do the scallop hem. Im thinking this could be a great DIY way to modify thrifted shorts into something awesome. I could make a how to if anyone is interested??

    Hah, so you think scallop hems are less work than a few buttons? I could be wrong, but I’m a bit scared of both, to be honest…
    I really have been gone from the blogging world for a while, I totally missed out on all the scallop hemmed shorts, thanks for filling in the blank.
    And a how to is always a great idea!

    A how-to would be wonderful! Scalloping is something I always mess up on vintage patterns. I can’t wait to see your shorts!
